Subject: their writing techniques
Beyond reproach and above criticism,This audio version of Kerouac and Burroughs writing techniques gives you the feeling that you are revealing a top secret level 4 clearance document..This audio should be heard by every inspired writer and reader.

A really terrific audio. Burroughs is entertaining and insightful, as always. The one reason I didn't give this four stars is because of the question and answer period. The people asking the questions aren't mic'd. However, given Burroughs's answers, I don't think the questions were that evocative. I wish he'd talked longer.

Subject: WSB files another report
1:00: A writer writes
5:00: K sets up WSB with a Trust Fund? No Burroughs millions?
8:00: Writing marks a man- any writing is totally revealing (if you know how to read).
13:00: What is a writer actually doing? Making the reader aware of what they know and doesn't know he knows.
20:00: First version=best? Worked for K, not WSB
28:00: Comparison of Gatsby and OTR
31:00: Alcoholism and the writer (writing in a state of stress)
31:30: Do you use a word processor?
32:20: Seeing in images as opposed to words. How do you conjure up these images?
32:45: What the hell was THAT question? Love is a mixture between sex and liking.
32:30: Why didn't you publish XXXXX?
34:00: Why are we seeing more of you lately?
34:30: Joyce/K influence?
35:00: K wsb influence direction?
35:40: Writer needs time?
37:00: Cutup process?
More questions, hard to hear. WSB responses snappy.
